The red that put Virginia on the map! "55% Merlot, 19% Cabernet Franc, 17% Petit Verdot and 8% Cabernet Sauvignon. It seems lovely and then some. The mid-palate finesse is a winery hallmark. It is gorgeously constructed, with impeccable balance and a nice finish. I'm not sure I've seen an Octagon with more delicious fruit. This is surprisingly approachable." WA 89

The Octogan is the flagship wine of the well respected winery Barboursville Vineyards in Virginia, South near Charlottesville. One of the most coveted red wines from Virginia, this is in the upper echelon of quality. Finesse and old world charm are what define this wines style, with a restrained set of fruit aromas, some earth tones of soil dust. The palate is medium to medium + bodied and the structure is fine and elegant.with good acids.

Smoky currant aroma. Cherry, tobacco, mild on the palate. Dry tannic finish. Tobacco. Raisin, Parmesan flavors. Still a bit young.

Still too young. I love it and wouldve given higher score if I didnt have 09. But this one has lots of potential! Look forward to how it turns out.

Confounds in plain sight. At once elegant AF, but extraordinarily rough around some edges. Savory, deep-blue, and obsessively balanced.
